    Default Versace Eau Fraiche or Chanel Edition Blanche

    I narrowed it down to these two for this summer. I do want a frag that I could use in the Fall and Spring also.

    Versace would be about half the price. So about $30 for the Versace and about $62 for the Chanel.

    If you want to use it in the in the fall, spring too I'd say Edition Blanche without doubt. It's way more versatile than Eau Fraiche which to me is mainly for hot summer days while Edition Blanche is fine for spring, summer and early/mid fall.

    Besides, when it comes to the smell overall I prefer Edition Blanche way more due to it's, to me, much smoother and better smelling scent instead of the Versace which is pretty much "fresh" and that's it.

    But then again, I'm pretty new to scents..

    Edition Blanche, its more well composed. Get both, 30 dollars for Versace is very good.

    Own both. Love both. Picked EB, due to its versatility (slightly better than the Versace in cooler weather), but I would highly recommend getting both if you like them both.

    Best place to get Edition Blanche? Or is this one of those fragrances that you just suck it up and buy at the Chanel counter?

    Blanche for sure, I think its far better composed and is a lot more interesting than eau fraiche in the summer though its hard to go wrong with either

  25. #25

    Default Re: Versace Eau Fraiche or Chanel Edition Blanche

    Out of the two I'd say go for Edition Blanche, it's definitely the better of the two in terms of composition and quality.. But they are quite different.. as someone mentioned before there's lemon pie, then with eau fraiche I'd definitely say aquatic with a hint of citrus..

    EB has more potential in seasons other than summer, that's for certain..

    Edition Blanche is certainly the more well made fragrance. However, Versace Man Eau Fraiche is the more pleasant smelling one. I've been told by a female coworker that I smelled like cleaning supplies last time I wore Edition Blanche to work. Plus Eau Fraiche lasts all day and projects nicely.

    Versace Man Eau Fraiche. I had Edition Blanche but traded it for Gucci Pour Homme II last week. Very happy with GPHII so far.

    I'd go with Chanel in this case. However in my experience, If one wants to get compliments from females, the answer lies in Versace Eau Fraiche. Don't know why, but women like the stuff.

    Edition Blanche for me. One of the best designer summer scents I've ever tried.

    My vote would also be for EB. I own the Versace, and have sampled EB. The Chanel wipes the floor with Eau Fraiche in all respects, and I wish I'd originally purchased it instead.

    Eau Fraiche is a far better choice, more complex and also has that "clean" vibe. Chanel ťdition blanche is one of the most mediocre fragrance i've ever smelled, smells literally like a lemon pie

    Looks like the OP went with the Versace last May. Your instincts were spot on, albeit a year late.

    Agree with those that say Edition Blanche if you want to wear it for fall also. Eau Fraiche is a great scent as well, but IMO doesn't really come into it's own unless it's very hot out.
